And as the OTHER phrase goes:-

"To gain respect, you gotta EARN it first" :)

Better one (which I firmly believe in) is - "To earn respect, first you must give it".

lol, I think everyone watched this tonight.

I agree, she never did earn the respect of the children and father, but at the same time, the kids were overly abusive. It was always going to be an explosive situation.

As Stu said, you have to earn respect, it doesn't come automatically no matter how old you are!

I couldn't believe that anyone would actually say those words! She really was unbelievable! And I didn't think the children were all that disrespectful, to be honest. They were just normal children, and I think most kids would have reacted in that manner if they'd had the kind of rules imposed on them that she introduced. I noticed in particular that even when the older daughter was ranting and raving, she didn't swear once. That's impressive!

I didn't see that programme, I was watching something even more interesting - an old Doctor Who episode ('Logopolis' which was Tom Baker's last story :)
